Boston marathon 2019

Just a heads up that GFA registration opens on Monday September 10th at 15.00 Irish time for those lucky enough to have a qualifying time (run after September 16th 2017) that is 20 minutes faster than their age group qualifying time. https://www.baa.org/races/boston-mar...r/registration

Just realised I'd be able to make the date next year which normally doesn't suit. Smack in the middle of 2 week holiday! Never done this and even my not great Valencia 2017 time is 23 minutes under the age QT!!

I'm sure you'll all get in. I booked an apartment (Free Cancellation) 1 T stop from Boston College, (south Street) for me and herself. Everything else is crazy money. The only issue is getting in to the city on marathon morning to get the bus. Its 45 minutes on the T.

Open to suggestions as I have never been to the city.
